Xbox 360 Crackproof?
Naw, just hard to crack. For once, someone realizes that the security will be broken eventually. That someone is Chris Satchell, on the Xbox 360 development team. They’re building a lot of security features into the Xbox 360, down to the silicon level. I don’t know if that means that they spray-painted “please don’t crack me” on the chip, or what. But I guess it means the security is in the hardware. But Mr. Satchell is wise enough to realize that the system will eventually be broken, saying “I’m sure sooner or later someone will work out how to circumvent security. But the way we have done the design doesn’t mean that it will work on somebody else’s machine.” Got that? Even if someone does crack the Xbox 360, it might just be that particular Xbox 360 that gets cracked. You’d have to do it all over again for the next one. Hmmm. Makes me wonder how that would work.
